Proposed changes in Broad Street, Teddington

Closed 28 Nov 2022

Opened 7 Nov 2022

Overview

The Council is inviting comments on a proposal to improve the existing bus stop outside ‘The Hogarth’ pub in Broad Street, Teddington.

The Council implemented a temporary bus stop arrangement, known as a build out, on the west bound bus stop on Broad Street during the early stages of the lockdown. This temporary arrangement was intended to allow for a greater waiting area to aid social distancing. The materials used were temporary and the wider public realm study for Broad Street looks to maintain this build out recognising its benefit to pedestrians generally through this area.

The temporary arrangement has been found to be beneficial, particularly to the passengers waiting, and it is therefore intended to make this arrangement permanent. 

The key changes are detailed below:

  • The bus stop boarder will remain the same width but requires a slight extension to enable two buses to use the stop. This will remove one pay and display parking space outside Gosia’s café
  • A new peak hour only loading restriction will be applied to the double yellow line between the signalised junction and the start of the bus stop boarder. This will keep the approach clear at busy times but enable loading/unloading in this area off peak. This is key for deliveries to the Hogarth pub
  • London Buses will install a new bus shelter, in approximately the same location as the existing, but turned around so that bus users are sitting facing the approaching buses. This will ensure a clear and unobstructed footway to the rear of the shelter
